Will we make the launch on Thursday? Yes, we should do. Just a brief update this week because I’m in the workshop most of the time.
Here are the thwarts cut out in oak and I’m fitting these at the moment.
We have focused on the teak deck this week and here is the aft deck partly done – you can see the little spacers that also hold down the planks as the glue dries.
Same for the bow.
This is the finished deck before putting in the black caulking. I’m really pleased with this – it looks very straight and the teak is good quality.
Putting in the caulking – we used Sikoflex. This will be sanded off when cured – hopefully on Sunday and leaving neat black lines.
And we put on the first top coat on the inside – International cream.
Oh and the trailer has arrived!
We also managed to get the centreboard in its case and it seems to move up and down without catching on anything – a great relief!
